Always welcomed, nothing is too much trouble. We have had multiple stays and Fiona always accommodates us if she can for short stays. Always ask here first. Our second home. The only downside for us is not being able to take our dogs. But it does mean they have a rest from us annoying humans 😊😊😊😊

I have no hesitation recommending this cottage. For us, the location was perfect, the cottage is warm, the beds are comfortable, we felt at home right away. The children were safe to wander to the shop & green area. There should be some gravel in the car park as it can get quite muddy. I would book again. Thanks.
